The entertainment and food choices surrounding this area are countless along with its flawless beauty of day, then into night as the red lanterns glow while the boating continues through the night, with great shopping tucked in the alleyways.

We went to Beihai Park on Saturday evening and Sunday morning. On Saturday evening it was quiet and relatively empty. The spring blossoms were in bloom, the willow flowers snowed down, and the peonies were colorful. It wa realxing to walk under the trees and in between the flowers, by the waterside. On Sunday morning, it came alive: veteran groups... More

very nice location. not too difficult to look even on subway. cozy. and warm. although aside from paying the entrance fee. there are other fees that you still have to pay inside such as boat, cave entrance, temple entrance.

We were at this park on Saturday morning and it was incredible seeing the locals chilling out and having fun. There were people dancing, a conductor conducting an invisible band, an ancient man playing hackysack extremely well and lots more. All this taking place with a spectacular backdrop made it a very worthwhile addition to our time in Beijing.

We visited this park for about 4 hours. You could definitely spend more time here but you should make sure you reserve at least 2-3 hours for this visit. I only cost 20 RMB to enter and was well worth the money. You get to see a lot of historic areas and performers. Everything from dancing to harmonica players is... More

This is a very nice park, we spent many hours there and covered a big area, taking plenty of photos. I would recommend the park to anybody on a nice day. The only thing that ruined the day was when we went out on the lake in a battery boat. The boat broke down half way through our trip on... More
